You and your spouse have worked hard to build a comfortable life. You have investments, properties and loving children. You still remember the day that you got married. It was a gorgeous day full of emotions and hope. Now, the two of you have come to a point in your lives where things just aren't working. You are going to file for divorce.
When you and your spouse had a happy marriage, you probably did not think twice about purchasing property together or titling assets in both of your names. When doing this, you created marital property that you each shared and of which you could each claim ownership. While this arrangement likely did not cause any issues during your marriage, you may find yourself dreading property division proceedings now that you have decided to divorce.
